what would it be?
At my school there's Adderall everywhere. I would say 1/3 of the people I know are prescribed large amounts of XR (extended release) adderall. Mostly it is friends with Rx's giving it to other friends but I know there is a substantial sales market in the school. I would say that 2/3 of the student body has tried it for studying, while maybe half use it for papers and exams pretty regularly. People say it helps them study and focus for long periods of time. Unfortunately like most people with Rx's, they are not ADHD in the slightest. They simply use it for studying. It really is sick that doctors hand the stuff out like M&M's while the pharmaceutical industry laughs all the way to the bank.Anyways the moral of the story is ... Are you a weaker person for relying on stimulants to study in law school? Maybe. But then, how are you going to be able to function when you work for "the man" at some biglaw sweatshop billing 2100 hours when Addys won't work anymore (tolerance develops pretty soon)? On cocaine?! I mean think about it ... Imagine a huge building full of sweaty, speeding, aggressive, crack-head attorneys who are grinding themselves to the bone. I can't think of much worse!
I know this is in reference to a much earlier post - but I, too, LOVED the reference to "drinking unicorn giggles" !!!!!! Too cute!

Some students use another trick to use to boost the effect of the amphetamines: they drink their own urine so that they'll recycle the amount of amphetamine that is excreted unchanged in the urine
